“Keep trusting in the Lord and do what is right in his eyes. Fix your heart on the promises of God and you will be secure, feasting on his faithfulness.”
God is faithful.
We can trust Him.
We can fall back and know He is faithful to catch us.
Faithfulness is relational.
Just as we can talk about ‘love’ with a manual type of precision.
It is the experiencing that relationship.
Encountering love ourselves which really gives us the knowledge of all of its depth.
That is the same when we encounter Jesus.
In the New Testament everyone He encounters is changed by their first hand experience of His love.
God’s faithfulness is revealed in every act exhibited in Jesus’ actions.
His design is portrayed.
We are designed also in His image and He is always restoring us to who He designed us to be.
It is never about our circumstances.
Perpetually about our relationship.
On occasions we are so intent on looking forward to the horizon of what God will do we miss what He is perpetually faithfully doing.
Feeding us, preparing us, healing our hearts , holding us close.
“ I am doing what I said I would do.”
We have to know His promises.
Feast and feed ourselves on His word scripturally to know what He has said He will do. What His promises are.
What He is faithful towards and hence what we put our trust in.
He is the “Yes and Amen” always that Abraham trusted and never wavered from.
An example for us today.
He knows every part of us.
He know what breaks our heart right now.
Knowing and trusting this brings us rest and freedom
To do relationship often means to be vulnerable too.
God is above all else .
We can recognise that He is in charge.
Therefore we can lean and trust in whatever He is doing.
Let go and fall back into the Father’s arms.
He is always pursuing us.
Stop and let yourself be caught.
Hear Jesus say ; “I’ve got this let go “
The illustration shows us falling back into the safe arms of Jesus and there being filled with His Holy Spirit. Bathed in the light which overcomes darkness.

“So why would I fear the future? For your goodness and love pursue me all the days of my life. Then afterward, when my life is through, I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!”Psalms 23:6 TPT
“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!”Psalm 34:8 ESV
“so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”Isaiah 55:11 ESV
